Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Luca pecorini" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Sicily, Italy. Italian Lavazza espressos compliment selections of house made desserts (Dolci).

    Gabriel is a star. The carbonara looked so good in every picture and I was looking forward to it for weeks, but it was very underwhelming—truffles, unfortunately, didn’t save it. It didn’t stay creamy; the sauced seized up and congealed. Apps were delightful, but another tomato or two would have helped made the caprese more enjoyable. The wife loved the carpaccio. Also, for someone with italian heritage, I’ve never had focaccia that soft. So good.

    Service was very good. Not too bust at 1:30 on a Monday. Set menu was delish good amount of food and they cooked the foie gras perfectly. I would go back again. Plus they give 15% to locals.

    Good food and service. I preferred set menu (Maki special), it used to be drink included but no longer. And price went up. No drink included but the set menu price increased.

    The food was delicious, but way overpriced. I got spaghetti (which came with nothing else) for $26, and it was such a small portion I was still hungry when done. My husband and son were both hungry after eating their meals, as well.

    We had a reservation , the table was set in advance and we were seated promptly, food was very good, my wife and I had Pasta Seafood Pecsatore for the main course, it was pretty good, so were the appetizers, waiters were courteous and accommodating, the only wish we had that restaurant would enforce dress code, seeing people in flip~flops was appalling. But overall the place stands out and we would definitely recommend Taormina.

    Food and service were great as always. We were seated outside, which would be great if there wasn’t a neighboring business that has a very strong maple syrup smell that is overpowering. On next visit will request not to be seated outside as the smell was off putting and made for an unpleasant dinning experience. Taoromina is great but they should speak to their neighboring business about the smell issue.

    It was ok service was kind of slow and they forgot we were celebrating something even though they called to confirm beforehand. It was good that they were able to sit us there early (party of 5) also my mom’s food came out cold and bland. They did good by taking it off the bill so my recommendation is try at you own risk maybe it will be better. Also upstairs dinning was unusually hot as well.

    What a great meal! My husband and I came during our trip to Waikiki for our honeymoon, and Taormina did not disappoint. It’s tucked away in a busy shopping center, but the ambiance was great! Our food was delicious, and our waiter was fantastic. We keep talking about that experience!

    The host, Christopher was professional and engaging. Stan was our waiter and he was pleasant! The restaurant is elegant and we had a great view of the Main Street and we enjoyed the sun settling. The food was delicious along with our drinks. I drank wine and the bartender made delicious tequila cocktails for my husband. Perfect place to celebrate an event.
